Ann MacDonalda s choirs perform at Lairmont Manor

Ann MacDonald began conducting choirs in Bellingham in 2006 because, she says, she wanted to “fill in the ‘gaps’ in the adult community choral scene,” so she focused on women’s choirs under her umbrella group, Bellingham Sings. “The first choir I put together was a young women’s choir, Dolcissima, that went on to perform at Carnegie Hall in 2007,” she says.
